I spent a considerable amount of time removing and replacing the starter in my 1994 V6 4x4 truck yesterday. Has anyone else had the same trouble? I ended up removing it towards the front of the truck between the frame and the motor. Is there a trick to this?

Most people take the starter out from the passenger side wheel well. That's where I take mine out from. Take off the front passenger wheel, the rubber flap covering the wheel well, and the tin plate. The space that the tin plate blocks off is the space you take it out from.

Whether your starter uses two rectangular types or one rectangular and one crescent you can substitute with two squares or one square and one crescent so any of the above part #'s for those kits will be the right ones,or about half of the auto electric shops in your local yellow pages would sell aftermarket contacts for only $5 each or the pair.

If the brake and charge lights come on during revving of the engine then it's a sign that the carbon alternator brushes require replacing as this is the mileage for them to wear out. In alternators the brushes wear out on average every 140-170 000 miles where on the dashboard the brake & charge light both come on at the same time. About half of the auto electric shops in your local yellow pages sell carbon alternator brushes and copper solenoid starter contacts for about $5/pair.Another way to verify that the alternator is not charging is while the engine is running bring a metal screwdriver or any metal object near the alternator and if the alternator is working properly then it should act like a magnet and grab the screwdriver.

I realize this dated but the info is timeless...I was having little luck pulling the entire starter out of my 92 22R truck when I read this, pulled the front pass wheel and life got much easier :clap: still took 3hrs to pull out the starter and change the oil and I still have to put the new one in tomorrow, but it was my first try and I was clueless so not bad really, thanks for the info about the wheel removal!
